    Fred­er­ick was born at Hader­slev in Slesvig, the son of Chris­t­ian IV and Anne Cather­ine of Bran­den­burg. In his youth and early man­hood, there was no prospect of his as­cend­ing the Dan­ish throne, as his older brother Chris­t­ian was elected heir ap­par­entin 1608. Dur­ing his early child­hood, he was raised under the su­per­vi­sion of Beate Huit­feldt. Fred­er­ick was ed­u­cated at Sorø Acad­emy and stud­ied in the Nether­lands and France. As a young man, he demon­strated an in­ter­est in the­ol­ogy, nat­ural sci­ences, and Scan­di­na­vian his­tory. He was a re­served and enig­matic prince who sel­dom laughed, spoke lit­tle, and wrote less, a strik­ing con­trast to Chris­t­ian IV. Even though he lacked the im­pul­sive and jovial qual­i­ties of his fa­ther, Fred­er­ick pos­sessed the com­pen­sat­ing virtues of mod­er­a­tion and self-con­trol. On 1 Oc­to­ber 1643 Fred­er­ick wed So­phie Amalie of Brunswick-Lüneb­urg, the daugh­ter of George, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneb­urg, who h...

    The death of his elder brother Chris­t­ian in June 1647 opened the pos­si­bil­ity for Fred­er­ick to be elected heir ap­par­ent to the Dan­ish throne. How­ever, this issue was still un­set­tled when Chris­t­ian IV died on 28 Feb­ru­ary 1648. After long de­lib­er­a­tion among the Dan­ish Es­tates and in the Rigsraadet (royal coun­cil), he was fi­nally ac­cepted as his fa­ther's suc­ces­sor. On 6 July, Fred­er­ick re­ceived the homage of his sub­jects, and he was crowned on 23 No­vem­ber. How­e...

    Defeated by Sweden

    With all his good qual­i­ties, Fred­er­ick was not a man to rec­og­nize fully his own lim­i­ta­tions and that of his coun­try. But he rightly re­garded the ac­ces­sion of Charles X of Swe­den on 6 June 1654 as a source of dan­ger to Den­mark. He felt that tem­pera­ment and pol­icy would com­bine to make Charles an ag­gres­sive war­rior-king: the only un­cer­tainty was in which di­rec­tion he would turn his arms first. Charles's in­va­sion of Poland in July 1655 came as a dis­tinct re­lief to...

    But Charles's in­sa­tiable lust for con­quest and his in­erad­i­ca­ble sus­pi­cion of Den­mark in­duced him to en­deav­our to despatch an in­con­ve­nient neigh­bour with­out any rea­son­able cause or de­c­la­ra­tion of war in de­fi­ance of all in­ter­na­tional stan­dards of ac­cept­able be­hav­ior on the part of rulers.

    Frederick was born at Haderslev in Slesvig, the son of Christian IV and Anne Catherine of Brandenburg. In his youth and early manhood, there was no prospect of his ascending the Danish throne, as his older brother Christian was elected heir apparent in 1608. Frederick was educated at Sorø Academy and studied in the Netherlands and France. As a young man, he demonstrated an interest in theology, natural sciences, and Scandinavian history. He was a reserved and enigmatic prince who seldom laughed, spoke little, and wrote less, a striking contrast to Christian IV. Even though he lacked the impulsive and jovial qualities of his father, Frederick possessed the compensating virtues of moderation and self-control. On 1 October 1643 Frederick wed Sophie Amalie of Brunswick-Lüneburg, the daughter of George, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, who had an energetic, passionate, and ambitious character. He was an enthusiastic collector of books and his collection became the foundation for the Copenhage...

    Proclaimed king

    The death of his elder brother Christian in June 1647 opened the possibility for Frederick to be elected heir apparent to the Danish throne. However, this issue was still unsettled when Christian IV died on 28 February 1648. After long deliberation among the Danish Estates and in the Rigsraadet (royal council), he was finally accepted as his father's successor. On 6 July, Frederick received the homage of his subjects, and he was crowned on 23 November. However, due to misgivings about the rul...

    Defeated by Sweden

    With all his good qualities, Frederick was not a man to recognize fully his own limitations and that of his country. But he rightly regarded the accession of Charles X of Sweden on 6 June 1654 as a source of danger to Denmark. He felt that temperament and policy would combine to make Charles an aggressive warrior-king: the only uncertainty was in which direction he would turn his arms first. Charles's invasion of Poland in July 1655 came as a distinct relief to Frederick, even though the Poli...

    Assault on Copenhagen repelled

    But Charles's insatiable lust for conquest and his ineradicable suspicion of Denmark induced him to endeavour to despatch an inconvenient neighbour without any reasonable cause or declaration of war in defiance of all international standards of acceptable behavior on the part of rulers. Terror was the first feeling produced at Copenhagen by the landing of the main Swedish army at Korsør on Zealandon 17 July 1658. None had anticipated the possibility of such a sudden and brutal attack, and eve...

    Frederick William was born in Potsdam in 1770 as the son of Frederick William II of Prussia and Frederika Louisa of Hesse-Darmstadt. He was considered to be a shy and reserved boy, which became noticeable in his particularly reticent conversations distinguished by the lack of personal pronouns. This manner of speech subsequently came to be considered entirely appropriate for military officers. As a child, Frederick William's father (under the influence of his mistress, Wilhelmine Enke, Countess of Lichtenau) had him handed over to tutors, as was quite normal for the period. He spent part of the time living at Paretz, the estate of the old soldier Count Hans von Blumenthal who was the governor of his brother Prince Heinrich. They thus grew up partly with the Count's son, who accompanied them on their Grand Tour in the 1780s. Frederick William was happy at Paretz, and for this reason in 1795 he bought it from his boyhood friend and turned it into an important royal country retreat. He...

    Frederick William succeeded to the throne on 16 November 1797. He also became, in personal union, the sovereign prince of the Principality of Neuchâtel (1797–1806 and again 1813–1840). At once, the new King showed that he was earnest of his good intentions by cutting down the expenses of the royal establishment, dismissing his father's ministers, and reforming the most oppressive abuses of the late reign. Unfortunately, however, he had all the Hohenzollern determination to retain personal power without the Hohenzollerngenius for using it. Too distrustful to delegate responsibility to his ministers, he lacked the will to strike out and follow a consistent course for himself. Disgusted with the moral debauchery of his father's court (in both political intrigues and sexual affairs), Frederick William's first endeavor was to restore morality to his dynasty. The eagerness to restore dignity to his family went so far that it nearly caused sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow to cancel his Pr...
